Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i 'm a person new to the linux world. I want to practice on various linux issues like commands , scripts etc. But the problem here is that, i don't have a system of my own right now. so I was wondering whether i could do my practice on-line, over a website which could provide me a editor to practice various linux issues and could act as a virtual computer for me.
I hope i have made my point clear.
Please reply if any one have any suggestions over the issue.
Probably the easiest thing to do would be to download a Linux LIVE CD, whereby
you can run a Linux OS from a CD and RAM, never touching the hard drive. And
then you can go to some places such as http://tille.soti.org/training/tldp/index.html
which will introduce you to Linux. You'll also get to practice some commands.
On the ISO Linux site there are several, but which are LIVE CDs aren't clear.
You can get the Slackware Linux CD2 and run it as a LIVE CD. And the address
for Knoppix is http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html
I believe the one that ends in .com is incorrect.
Unless I'm mistaken, it's impossible to run a virtual operating system via
web interface. And even if it is, why would one want to? Especially when
the use of a CD running in RAM provides the real OS and you can even
Btw - what in the world is classstrugglix-0.0.1? I know there are tons of
Linux distros. Have you built one also, or is this just a ruse?
I personally think he should d/l Slackware and wrestle it to the blood!
putting it in those terms, it could appear to be rather heavy duty.
Maybe the requirement isn't so demanding - after all the objective seems to be practice for a newcomer to Linux. Perhaps, "virtual web based linux os" is a bit of overkill for that particular need. Up to the thread starter to clarify I expect.
In many ways he could set up a ssh client in his windows to a remote linux training machine where he could fiddle around with basic bash command handling, quite a necessary linux skill.
Also doing the quiz on bash here on LQ is a short piece of "practice" so to speak. Depends on the requirement.
Yeh, I was aiming for irony with my denoted linux distro. I know it mightn't suit everybody taste in humor, but I don't think it's offensive, perhaps a bit misleading, sure ...
This pkg: http://www.cygwin.com/ provides Linux tools/cmds on Windows/DOS. I imagine there will be some Linux cmds missing, 'cos it wouldn't make sense on that platform, but it'd be a very good start and quite handy as well.
I have started using sdf.lonestar.org. it is really a great help and a wonderfull environment to work in. Apart from this i have created a user login for myself on a local system as well . Thanks for all the advices
